New Delhi, Dec 16: After the initial muck-throwing and blame-games, the Rajeev Chandrasekhar-Ratan Tata spat has entered the next level. Rajeev Chandrasekhar has issued a fresh reply to the searing open letter from Ratan Tata that was lapped up by the media with open arms.

This time Rajeev chooses to ask key questions to the Tata chief regarding the 2G spectrum issue. He points out how the Tata's received 2G licenses in 2008 at 2001 rates and wanted to know which other companies were involved in hoarding.

He also questioned the role of former Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) chairman Pradeep Baijal, who is now a consultant to the Tata Group in the scam. He also indicated that it was not just Tata but DB Telecom, Unitech, Reliance, Airtel and Vodafone that have benefited unfairly and proclaims that they too need to prove their credibility

Rajeev Chandrasekhar clears his stand in his open letter and says, "I have absolutely no vested or financial interest in the telecom sector, either directly or indirectly. I have, over the last few years, written multiple letters on this and related issues to the government, MoCIT and the PM. I have also asked several related questions in Parliament. All these are available for public viewing on my website."

He also expressed his respect for the SC directive to exercise restraint in dealing with the 2G probe and says that an open letter was an effort on this front to corner the "perpetrators" and book them. He also adds that recovering the lost money is a "national priority". He also reiterates a blow-by-blow account of the spate of allegations against him by Tata in this fresh response.
